Somebody New

Just after Christmas I was being the shoulder to cry on for a friend who was having a bit of man trouble she had recently started dating somebody new and I can remember saying back then that I'm glad I didn't have to go through all of that again. The whole meeting somebody new, dating, starting afresh I was glad I was married. Fast forward a couple of weeks and my world was tipped upside down, my marriage ended and I was suddenly facing the prospect of having to one day dip my toe in to the dating world again. The thought of it filled me with dread, the awkward first dates, the nervousness around somebody new. I'm not terribly keen on meeting new people as I am a shy person and I will be honest meeting a new person in a romantic way scares me.

I started to think how would I actually meet somebody new? I don't get out much with being a mum and would the fact that I am a mum scare people off? I knew it wasn't going be the same as the last time I was single when I could go out whenever I wanted when most of my friends were single and they were all up for a night out. How do you actually meet somebody new these days anyway? I didn't fancy going out of the pull around the town I feel like I'm too old for that now even though I am only 24. I also didn't like the idea of internet dating as it always sounds to be full of creeps so how on earth do you actually find somebody new?

The truth is I have met somebody new, well he's not really "new" it's somebody I have known for a few months but even after David and I split up it is somebody I never imagined anything happening with, somebody I never thought would be interested in me in that way.

It's still early days and we are both wanting to take things slow because obviously he knows my situation, but I feel like I can say I'm happy for the first time in a long time and quite a lot of that is down to him it's funny how you can find happiness in the most unlikely places.
